Fully autonomous systems like Waymo are being piloted in less complex circumstances. Human-in-the-loop systems like Tesla Autopilot navigate drivers when it is safe to do so, and lets the human take control in ambiguous circumstances. Computers are great at memorization, but not yet great at reasoning. We cannot enumerate to a computer every single circumstance that a car might

“If you can make a system that can survive this random failure testing, then you will more or likely survive whatever other chaotic conditions exist.”
This week, Software Engineering Daily sought answers to some fundamental questions from the following guests: David Schwartz talked about maintaining security in Ripple, a distributed cryptographic payment system Craig Smith explained the attack surfaces of cars and the consequences of the Wired Jeep hacking Bruce Schneier surveyed Ashley Madison and other recent events, and talked about Data and Goliath Max Krohn talked about verifying identities with Keybase and protecting OKCupid’s users from bots Adrián Lamo gave a
Automobiles are now computers with security vulnerabilities. Reverse engineers have begun to dissect car security.
